I'm just going to – boop – bookmark this shtuff in hopes that it doesn't overlap with other BoFs I must attend. This is the fun stuff!


Just throwing it out there - there are a couple AWESOME R packages for the NFL.

nflscrapR - for NFL play-by-play data, lots of expected points added and other calculations you can do from this
ffanalytics - for general fantasy football data scraping (recently updated to tidyverse friendly syntax)

I'm doubling down on what @taras said! I REALLY hope to be able to attend this one! :smiley:
